. once somebody else to vote for and now that mitt romney is both acceptable because of his debate performances, and it looks like he might actually win, it's easier to jump ship to him. that's the kind of group of people you'll have to watch in some of these tightly fought states. chris: david, your thoughts on this cy war going on in both directions clearly. >> i think obama may be making a mistake in this posture of sitting on a lead. there's a way in which the president has been too defensive, too reticent in his demeanor through the campaign. and if you pull the camera back and look at the last couple of months, there's no question whatever the momentum factor is in these last few days, no question that over that broader period, there has been momentum toward romney. and people he was not really close challenger, he is now. and i think that factor is there. and you can just see it. you can see it in his body language. chris: i can see what obama is trying to do. he's trying to remind people of all the stakes in this election. if you get, for example, george w. bush elected ove

. and also, you had gm and chrysler auto executives both coming out and condemning mitt romney. so the people who should naturally be supporting mitt romney in the last week of the campaign, they're actually supporting barack obama. and that's got to hurt. >> all right. thank you so much. i really appreciate y'all coming on. we'll see you in the next few days. thank you. >>> and developing news right now that we just referenced, janet napolitano is on the ground right now in new york city as major problems persist after hurricane sandy. lines two miles long just to get gas. >>> and we're told within the last hour, there's a four-hour traffic jam in the lincoln tunnel. we'll get a live update for you. >>> plus, congressman todd akin was abandoned by the national gop establishment over his, quote, legitimate rape comments. but now akin is putting hundreds of thousands of dollars into a major ad blitz. the question is where is the money coming from? it is just one of the things we thought you should know, and you can joinous conversation on twitter. you can find us @tamronhall and @newsnation.

and change. how can both republicans or people who are voting for mitt romney if they're independents say that things have changed too much. they "want their country back." but they still didn't get change. how can you have the argument both ways? >> that's easy, victor, that's easy. republicans never wanted president obama's hope and change. democrats and independents did. >> let's talk about those independents. >> those are the ones right now who are the ones you're talking about. those are the ones most disappointed. >> let's talk about something that happened on your show. a caller called into your show and gave you a bit of a warning, right? >> he gave republicans a warning. the same thing i have been doing. if mitt romney wins this time around, i'm an embarrassed if republicans screw it up this time around, i don't know if we'll vote for them again. >> i'm going to give the republican party this warning, that i'm with you by default. but if you don't do something in the next four years, it's just going to flip right back to democrat. >> and, specifically, that warning is for what el
. governor romney preparing to hit the battleground state of ohio. both campaigns going full throttle in the final stretch, crisscrossing a number of key swing states. sometimes landing at airport when the other guy is taking off. john roberts is live in ohio where the governor will attend a ral later this afternoon. little me more about romney's message in the final days. john, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, bill. the battle in ohio is all about jobs. president obama going after the romney ad, recent one on auto bail yet which the chrysler selling jeep to the italians who want to start producing jeep ins china. obama administration saying absolutely not true they're shipping jobs overseas. the romney campaign saying it is true they want to start producing jeeps in china and every job created in china is not a job created here in the united states. so the campaign trail governor romney will continue to pure the message of change versus the status quo, saying under his administration real change starts on day one and mocking the president for wanting to create jobs by
to overtaking the president in several key swing states and both nationally. now, the romney campaign did put out a memo earlier in the week throwing cold water on one ohio state poll they took issue with saying it wasn't properly calibrated but they are also at the same time touting a new "washington post" poll showing mitt romney leading the president nationally and doing very well among independents. at the same time we should p point out that along this tour he has hit a bit of a roadblock. one of his top surrogates, john sununu made some comments when he suggested that colin powell was endorsing the president because of his race. sununu put out a statement saying he believes powell endorsed the president because of his policies. it's not just the tough talk on the campaign trail that we're seeing that is causing things to get a little rocky out here. there is also the prospect of a major storm heading to the east coast. what forecasters have dubbed frankenstorm. it has already caused the romney campaign to reschedule on sunday. no word on when it will be rescheduled. >> thanks very much.
nutter. thanks for coming inside "the war room." up next, president obama and mitt romney are both try hing to avoid politics this week. that doesn't mean politics won't find them. that story is next right here in "the war room." current tv encourages you to vote on november 6th but just as importantly to take the time to learn about each candidate's stance on the issues that matter to you. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. vote smart. our democracy depends on an informed electorate. i look at her, and i just want to give her everything. yeah you -- you know, everything can cost upwards of...[ whistles ] i did not want to think about that. relax, relax, relax. look at me, look at me. three words, dad -- e-trade financial consultants. so i can just go talk to 'em? just walk right in and talk to 'em. dude those guys are pros. they'll hook you up with a solid plan. they'll -- wa-- wa-- wait a minute. bobby? bobby! what are you doing, man? i'm speed dating! [ male announcer ] get inve
has done to the campaign. both president obama and mitt romney altering their campaign schedules, of course. but there are two different positions. how does this play out? >> great coverage this morning. and i have to pause and say it's sobering to see the pictures, to think about all the people with kids who can't get to a shift they may need. and it's hard to talk clinically about the politics, but go ahead and put on the stethoscope here. and point out that the campaigns are not suspended, the campaigns have been going on, they're just having to be very ginger about how they navigate it. at the same time president obama yesterday was sending out an appeal to his campaign list for red cross donations, his campaign aides were on a conference call talking about how they're about to go up in ohio with an ad hammering romney. they also announce there as you were talking about they're going up in pennsylvania. the president has that automatic stage. we saw him acting there as commander in chief. mitt romney has to avoid looking like he's going for photo ops. looking like he's doing
of the campaign. you know they both of them have been not totally sole on the notion that romney was going to win for most of the time. privately both -- >> is that what's happening? >> i think both of them are looking, to some extent, what comes next. i'm not saying they don't want governor romney to win this election but both skap ceptical his chances for a year and a half. governor christie, not taking anything away from -- i think he was genuinely star struck to be on marine one, but he needs to get re-elected. he has a tough re-election battle. you can't be on the wrong side of president obama in the disaster situation if you're going to win re-election in a blue state in a year from now when he has to run again. >> which, by the way -- >> the only way he can run in 2016 if is he wins again. politics are there. governor bush's politics are different. trying to get himself back into play after having been out for a long time, he's going to be a different hoe down for him and a different way to deal with republican base than the one that chris christie is in. different political paths. >> if m
. the romney campaign and ryan campaign have both cancelled events in virginia beach, virginia, because of hurricane sandy. and tomorrow morning, on our news makers program, kentucky senator rand paul will talk about his support for mitt romney. he'll also talk about his role in congress and his views on u.s. foreign aid. join us on sunday for our live news makers program beginning at 10:00 a.m. eastern right after washington journal here on c-span. >> as we approach election day, c-span is asking middle and high school students to send a message to the president. in a short video, students will answer the question, what's the most important issue the president should consider in 2013. for a chance to win the grand prize of $5,000, with $50,000 in total prizes. >> thank you, st. augustine. i brought the friends with me. this is miles. say hi, miles. and parker, this is my other grandson, parker made his own sign. these are my -- some of my grandkids. i'm so blessed. it's so wonderful to have them with me today and my gorgeous daughter-in-law mary. as you can see, she's expecting another
both for being here. >> thanks, rev. >> michelle, it's not a surprise but it seem like we're in a phase where behind the romney smile is a very rough campaign? >> absolutely. we've got a few days left. we have entered the phase of the campaign where time and again you can go there and get the little bit of an edge and radio ads that are shocking, billboards that are deceptive, voter suppression, voter intimidation, whatever it takes. >> voter subpoena prek, voter intimidation. but linking the president to hugo chavez and say we don't believe in god we trust? this is way beyond the boundaries. >> you have to hit people in the gut. you're not appealing to reason at this point, if you ever are, in a presidential campaign. you've got to get them in a gut level to get your allies all fired up and to, you know, hopefully get anybody still on the fence to really just kind of find some way to get through to them and get them over to your side. >> richard, what does this say? the politics of desperation, what does it say about romney? does it mean he and his team is worried? >> he's never had an
and then we'll hear the president speak. both mitt romney and obama, he is going to start in ohio today, and spending the day in ohio. romney will go to wisconsin first and then head to ohio. he'll be getting a lot of love over the weekend. what is interesting is both candidates have op-eds appearing on cnn.com today. mitt romney's a very routine, it seems to reiterate all of the same stuff. that he will create 12 million new jobs -- 12 million jobs will be created anyway. more of the same. and he has now taken on the idea that he is going to create real change. i can't believe it's not change. he has got real change compared to the president's change. >> stephanie: i thought he was going to call it of course i never said detroit should go bankrupt. >> sure. the president starts out by talking about how we have come together as a nation after this hurricane, and how we have to continue to where we were before. we'll be right back. day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv
pencesy voters from low propensity voters. both campaigns have a scale. romney campaign is 0 to 4. if you were al sharpton you would be 0, ann romney a 4. obama campaign has a 1 to 5. rush limbaugh would be 1, michelle obama would be 5. if you lay these over in ohio, what the republicans believe the obama campaign has done is banked a lot of their high propensity vote who were going to show up anyway. what they're trying to do is call the low propensity voters in ohio and turn out a hire percentage of their high propensity voters on election day. the obama campaign acknowledges some of the folks banking now are probably closer to the high propensity scale. they do believe there'll be enough of a firewall particularly in northern ohio to get that state across the finish line. >> shira, there's a new tampa bay times, bay news, "miami herald" poll mitt romney leading by 6 points. however our poll, the nbc marist poll shows the president leading by two. we're all scratching our heads here. what do you make of these polls and the difference between them? >> well, it's obvious that both campaig
? this is questions we hope to get to austan and doug, both of them as we watch mitt romney take to the stage in wisconsin. should mention a busy day for mitt romney. a little later on today he has another rally. he will be joined by big names in the republican party. condoleezza rice for example will be with him. bobby jindal, marco rubio, lindsey graham. they will all be at a rally tonight in ohio. first in wisconsin, the speech by mitt romney that his campaign is calling his closing argument for him four days before election day. let's take a listen. >> four more days! four more days!. >> thank you so much. you got that one right by the way, you have got that absolutely right, four more days. this is a, oh, great experience to be here with you today. this is so exciting. [cheering]. what a great state, what a great welcome. by the way this state will help me become the next president of the united states. [cheers and applause] i want to thank, i want to thank governor walker for that extraordinary introduction. what a great governor you have here. you're very lucky. that took some work. [c
about turnout that he describes as absurd. it also describes some stuff that makes him believe romney is going to win like crowd size and closing arguments. that shows that mitt romney is totally going to win this thing. both are trying to convince the country it's obvious they are going to win. it's worth listening to the arguments and checking to see if the arguments are based in good sense. but honestly, it's also worth recognizing that every campaign on both sides does this every time. for example, here is how this particular phenomenon looked the day before the election in 2008 when this bragging that we get every year was being done by a john mccain republican surrogate named mitt romney. >> inside a campaign, what do you get on the inside that we don't get on the outside because you're doing your own polling? >> you see the widest array of polls. you look at mason dixon that cake out yesterday. you take that apart, it's close to the internal polls. it shows that john mccain is leading in the states that he's got to lead in. we're going to pick up pennsylvania. we have a good sh
direction. we're on the right track. we've been through difficult times. and mitt romney's closing argument is we haven't gone far enough and we haven't gone fast enough. they both have reasonable arguments, hence why they're tied in the polls. gwen: we've heard i am the candidate of change. we've heard it more because barack obama made it such a big deal four years ago. and mitt romney is trying to appropriate that. what's even more interesting about this closing argument is after the most negative campaign that we've seen probably in our lifetimes they are closing with a very soft sale to independent voters saying i can break the gridlock. it's ok that there are republicans, democrats. i'm going to be the one that can get us beyond that. it's two things, it's to appeal to independents. but another piece of it is the growing realization that congress is going to be divided regardless of who is elected as president and this next president has to deal with a divided government. gwen: i wonder how much of this is about economic development and the jobs numbers can play into that. people are s
left but attacks and insults. with just 11 days ago before election day both camps feel the pressure. likely voters favored romney over the president by one point in a "abc news" washington post. and five points in in the latest gallup tracking poll. an american research poll showed the president with a two-point edge. we should know next week whether the singer meat loaf at a rally last night shift the balance of weight in that key state. a purple poll gave thethe one-point engine in cool and showed him tied with romney at 47-47 in virginia. the republican-leaning rasmussen gave obama a two-point lead over romney in florida. david axelrod still seems confident of a obama win leaving romney to place to go. in my view we have got the lead and the ball. the question is how does he change that now. maybe so, but the job numbers that come out the friday before the election still have the potential to change the dynamics in this very tight race. for administer on this speech the every tightens polls i'm joined by christia freeland digital editor at thomson reuters and author of "plutocrat
they have a 50.1% chance of winning. and you talk to the romney people, it's the same thing. both sides understand, it is close, and it could go either way. and anybody that thinks that this race is anything but a toss-up right now is such an ideologue, they should be kept away from typewriters, computers, laptops and microphones for the next ten days because they're jokes. >> well, you know, i think mark shares part of what i feel and what i have found from talking to people over this past weekend. democrats especially is that there is a level of confidence, but it's laced with a level of anxiety that reduces the confidence that this is still 50/50. and you're absolutely right. anybody who says, you know, this thing is in the tank for one candidate or another, huh-uh. it's not there. i think you found the same thing. >> democrats who think they're going to win believe as they have all along romney is unelectable, he's just not an acceptable choice and will win because we've done enough to disqualify him. i spent friday night and friday day with romney. he's performing well in those bat
states but that's an all-important state for both campaigns to win this election, mitt romney is almost going to have to win ohio if not he's going to have to run the table everywhere else. this is a good piece of news for the president out of ohio today. virginia and florida just too close to call. well inside that margin of error. could go either way. but for all the talk you have heard of mitt romney's momentum since the first debate in denver, that fateful first debate, it looks like from this poll the momentum has either stopped or slowed. that, of course, is not the message that the campaign has been putting out over the past couple of days. >> you talk about sandy. there's a big picture of the day will be governor chris christie and president obama together surveying the damage. again, so many people have remarked it's a remarkable sight. i'm not quite sure if it is and seems like common sense. we know where governor christie is based and there are people in need. unlike michael bloomberg when's not planning to run for an office we know of in the immediate future. governor christ
a difference in polls from the nbc marist poll and local polls show romney is up more than we're indicating. >> first of all, i think both sides genuinely think they're going to win or certainly think they have a great chance of winning. that said, pennsylvania has always been fool's gold for republicans. it looks tempting at the end. they might go for it. >> sounds good on paper. >> but they don't get it. now if the new nbc marist poll is correct about florida, florida can decide it before we even, you know, do the late-night counting of the absentee ballots out of cleveland. i mean because florida, if that goes for president obama, that's pretty much the story, i think. >> mr. caputo, let me bring new you've in on this. the poll shows two point ahead for governor romney in florida, that within the margin of error. my team and i were struck with looking at the lines of people early voting in that state today. >> well, those lines are really going to be the indication of how this campaign is going to go. we've had gangbusters early voting turnout in florida. about two million people in a we
to know where this election will be decided, just watch where the candidates go. mitt romney made three campaign appearances in the state of virginia today. president obama jumped all over the place from wisconsin to nevada, to colorado. both candidates are making their closing arguments. interesting. a closing argument. what is mitt romney's closing argument? his latest incarnation is that he's the guy who reaches across the aisle? >> we have to stop the dividing and the attacking and the demonizing. we've got to reach across the aisle, bring in good democrats with good republicans and finally do the people's business and put the politics behind. >> we just need to stop demonizing, don't we? well, old mittster, show leadership and pick up the phone and call mitch mcconnell. it's interesting for mitt romney to present himself as a guy who works across the aisle while president obama is being label by the tea partyers and everybody else in the right wing as nothing but the divider in chief. romney might want to pick up the phone, you know, give this guy a call, keynote speaker of the rep
make in the future. i cannot anticipate what a mitt romney administration might be. host: they both have op-eds any washington street journal. -- wall street journal. for romney, a new direction for america. and obama -- real progress, but we are not don. you can go to the wall street journal to see more of that. should mr. romney went, it says if mitt romney wins next week, enough democrats would probably be left to block his promise to roll back wall street rules enacted in response to the financial crisis. romney would be expected to appoint new leaders of the treasury department, securities and exchange commission and other agencies that would take a less aggressive approach. instead of timothy geithner romney is expected to fill the position with a less activist nominee. in addition, a romney administration could leave some posts under weekend acting heads. florida calling in, tom on our line for independents. caller: i am voting for romney mack. i would like to see romney in the senate. i do believe he is out there with his friends having a good time. and you show me your frie
